All of Kylian Mbappé’s World Cup winnings were once donated to charity: “I don’t require payment. I compete in support of the flag’s colors” Kylian Mbappé is one of the most intriguing names before the 2022 World Cup final.
The 2022 World Cup has reached its championship-deciding stage after taking place for a month. The final match between Argentina and France will officially begin tonight, December 18, with the appearance of football legends.
Naturally, Kylian Mbappé is on this list as he is the player with the highest salary in the world. The player also makes some incredibly astounding claims about his earnings and character.
Mbappé received a sizable salary and bonus for his World Cup victory with France in 2018, totaling roughly $500,000. The gamer gave this entire sum of money to a children’s charity. Mbappé shared this choice and stated:
I don’t require payment. I compete to preserve the anthem.
I earn a considerable amount of money. So, in my opinion, it’s crucial to assist those in need. Many individuals are in need, and assisting them is nothing new for folks like us.

Mbappé also outlined his strong stance on money in an interview with Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS), a Swiss radio organization, at the end of 2018:
– I received a transfer of funds that, as a child, I could never have imagined. To me, who comes from a quite modest background, that is incredibly impolite. But that’s how the transfer market operates, and that’s how football is played. I won’t start a football revolution. I must adhere to the rules of the system I’m in and keep my composure.
In this interview, Kylian Mbappé also discussed his goals and personality, saying:
I refuse to act like a carbon copy of anyone. Like the greats, you’ll always want to write your own tales rather than imitations of others.
High self-esteem, in my opinion, is quite normal, even if you must maintain humility in daily life because that is the quality of outstanding individuals.
Laughing is always good. Even five minutes before the game, I always make jokes.
– Being a little immature and childlike is okay. Football is under such intense strain that even a little play or enjoyment won’t matter.

At the end of 2021, Mbappé once again shared his thoughts on money with RMC Sport (French sports news site). At this time, the player has not renewed his contract with Paris-Saint Germain (PSG) and is being strongly interested by Real Madrid:
– Life experience is more important than making money.
– I have a ‘silent’ relationship with money: I know it’s important, I’m happy to have it, but it’s not what drives me every second of the day.
According to Edudwar.com, Kylian Mbappé has an estimated net worth of nearly $150 million. Total annual income is $43 million, according to Forbes. According to Forbes, for the 2022-2023 season alone, the player’s pre-tax income is $128 million.
Kylian Mbappé is the highest-paid footballer in the world
Mbappé most recently kept up his erratic comments throughout the 2022 World Cup. The World Cup 2022 rules stipulate that the winner of the “Player of the Match” award must appear in a post-game press conference with the media. FIFA will penalize a player’s national team if they break the regulations.
Kylian Mbappé won this honor in two matches during the group stage against France, Denmark, and Australia. The player, however, was not present for any of these press briefings. Mbappé stated the following before it was revealed that the French Football Federation (FFF) had to pay a fine for its actions:
– The French Football Federation (FFF) will pay a fine, I have learnt. Just allow me to pay FIFA’s fine. The FFF is not liable for a specific error.
– I am aware that my constant silence raises a lot of questions. I just want to express myself and concentrate on the competition. I must focus entirely on this task and must not let anything else enter my thoughts.
